The SuperGrip std is a light yet extremely powerful grapple for regular forwarding. It’s most suitable for thinning, but can also be used for lighter clear-cutting. This is the model we manufacture the most, and it forms the foundation of our SuperGrip series. Just as its name suggests, the SuperGrip std has become a standard of sorts in the industry – the ideal log grapple.
The SuperGrip-S is a heavily reinforced log grapple that can handle the toughest forwarding jobs. It’s also ideal for mounting on an excavator. In designing the SuperGrip-S, we’ve incorporated all our knowledge about durability and ruggedness to give contractors looking for a sturdy grapple exactly what they need. Just like its fellow SuperGrip grapples, the SuperGrip-S is used in forests around the world.
The SuperGrip-R is a brushwood grapple. It’s based on the same frame as the rest of the SuperGrip series, but has heavily reinforced brushwood arms specially designed for forwarding brushwood, forest residue, and tree residue – even stumps. The arms have no knives but extra reinforcement to handle the most demanding forwarding. Under the boom line is a sturdy reinforcement plate connecting the shanks to prevent them from getting bent out of shape.
SuperGrip II STD
The SuperGrip II std is a standard grapple for regular forwarding. Its geometry and gripping force are the same as the SuperGrip series, but the SuperGrip II std has a somewhat stronger frame than its fellow SuperGrip std. At the beginning of 21. century, we felt it was time to further develop the SuperGrip line and launched the SuperGrip II.
The SuperGrip II std has only one brace, but it is solid cast metal. The powerful cylinder can handle up to 250 bar and is centered while the brace is placed to the side of the cylinder. The brace has a single purpose: to move the grapple arms in parallel without providing any additional force, ensuring that the force delivered to the grapple is evenly distributed.
The SuperGrip II-S is the strongest grapple in the SuperGrip II series. Use it for heavier forwarding or mount it on an excavator for lighter work.
With the SuperGrip II-S, we feel that we’ve achieved a good balance between strength and weight. It’s lighter than the SuperGrip -S, yet still stronger than a standard grapple.
